Following the River Gail, you'll leave Villach behind and you'll soon be saying goodbye to Austria and hello to Italy. The canal valley extends in the border triangle of Italy, Austria and Slovenia, the center of which is the Italian border town of Tarvisio. Austrians, Slovenes, Friulians and Italians have lived together here for centuries, because all three major European language families - Germanic, Romanic and Slavic - meet here directly. Further through the Kanaltal you can admire the beauties of the Friulian alpine region with an intact, untouched nature and extensive forests from the saddle. If you want, you can take the train (ticket not included) to Tarvisio or Ugovizza, shortening part of the route.
